We have decided to spend a few years, or more, of our retirement full time in an RV. We never planned to retire in our existing home. Figured at the time we sell the house why not travel around the country while we don’t own a stick built home.
I suppose it would be more accurate to replace the term “retirement” with “freedom” in that I’ll still be working part-time to support our needs. The difference will be our income will come from various sources, including social security and pensions, rather than working a fulltime job. Because the amount of earned income we should need from a job is far less, we will have more flexibility in selecting our part-time work.
We are using this blog as an electronic notebook to jot down our planning steps. We hope by posting ideas and decisions we will generate comments from those traveling the same path or those more experienced for the benefit of all readers.
We have the time so why not use it to research everthing! We spent years planning for retirement and how we would fund it. Karen and I view planning for retirement to an RV just another step in our overall retirement planning.
Make sure you come back and visit our blog pages. Very few are static pages as I’m adding content all the time. We really want to get input from whomever is willing to give it.
Planning reduces the risk of failure. Or as my dad used to say it, “piss poor planning leads to piss poor performance.”
Karen and I started living fulltime in our fifth wheel on 8/22/19. I decided to keep posting on this blog because I’ve received so much feedback with ideas to make living the RV lifestyle easier. Also family comes here to see what we are up to even when Karen posts on her Facebook page. I want to keep posting so folks know what planning steps worked and what did not.
Thanks for reading,
Mark and Karen
